I too worry about that. I don't have the exact data. I won't lie about that, but it is common knowledge that a stressed rattler that has been relocated a lot of times doesn't do well.

But with the limits imposed and the lack of rattlesnake stunts and barbarism, this is a big step in the right direction. Not quite there yet, I'll admit....but a hell of a lot better than the roundups in Texas and Oklahoma.

I wish I had the exact data I have recently spoken and did a on the air live interview with a person who attended a no-kill roundup in Pennyslvania recently.


Honestly right now I'm not going to harp on the no-kill roundups when WORSE atrocities such as the roundups in Texas and Oklahoma exist. If they would support the one snake per hunter limit and go with the pit tagging and release, I'd probably back off....still wouldn't 100% agree...but much better than the wholesale slaughter of thousands of rattlesnakes.

I wonder what would happen to these people if they did a jackrabbit roundup, or even a stray cat roundup....any other species but rattlers. And then I wonder why it is different with rattlers?
